Insight: A Discussion About The Israeli-Palestine Conflict / News Network / Ideateam


Published July 9, 2014


Discussion On Middle East Conflict Continues - Part 2: Israeli defense forces say missiles from the Gaza Strip have hit Sacramento's sister city Ashkelon, Israel as militant attacks ramp up in the region. The swell in assaults is in response to the kidnapping and killing of three Israeli teenagers in the West Bank last month and the grisly killing of a Palestinian teenager in Jerusalem last week. But Sacramento Area Jewish leaders say attacks on Israel were on the rise even before the death of the three Israeli teens. Joining us to talk about how Sacramento area Jews are reacting to the rising tension between Israel and the surrounding Palestinian territories is Barry Broad, President of the Board of the Sacramento chapter of the Jewish Federation, and Rabbi Reuvan Taff, a rabbi for the Mosaic Law Congregation.

- Part 1: We spoke with a family member of the Palestinian teenager who was killed last week has family throughout Northern California, including his cousin Wadha Abukhdeir, who lives in Davis. She joins us in wake of the tit-for-tat violence with David Mandel, a member of the Jewish Voice for Peace. We're also speaking with George Bisharat, a professor at UC Hastings Law who focuses on the Middle East, about continuing clashes in Gaza and the West Bank.
